Water, Water Everywhere [Sep. 19th, 2007|09:49 am]
Tony Grist
We had a bit of a plumbing incident last night. Luckily we're insured and the plumber got to us quickly. There's still a big puddle at the far end of the kitchen where the water pooled.

I hate it when things break. I don't feel equipped to deal with the physical world. Metaphysics, yes; bring it on. But the world of appearances has me beat. 

I woke this morning with a tension headache. Earlier I'd been dreaming they'd made me Archbishop of Canterbury.

God! For your sake I hope not. I'd rather deal with a wall of broken pipes than what this poor bloke has on his plate.

Oh, I know- isn't it awful. Personally, I think he should be challenging the African bishops over their homophobia, but I understand what a terrible fix he's in.

I agree with you - BUT, would you want to be known as the Archbishop who presided over the dissolution of the Anglican Church.

I think his legacy is going to be sad one whichever way things go.

Yikes. I hate plumbing incidents. I hope everything dries up quickly.

Thanks. I keep going into yhe kitchen to make sure the leak hasn't started up again. It's amazing how unnerving these things are.

I do okay with most stuff around the house, but plumbing problems just confound me.

I detest plumbing. I know just enough about it to create even bigger problems than the ones I set out to correct. Perhaps there have been repairs that went well, but I have no memory of them.

And on the whole, I think being made Archbishop would be a bigger headache still.

Right now the Archbish has one of the worst jobs in the world.

And I'm afraid he's not up to it. He's a gentle, unworldly scholar and what's needed is a political and spiritual giant- someone of the stature of St Augustine or Martin Luther.

We´ve had a few plumbing mishaps lately and I see one or two more in the making. The worst was when a pipe burst inside a wall. They had to rip out half a wall before they found the exact point where it burst. I´m glad the plumber got there quickly.

Yikes!

This wasn't anything like on that scale. A washer failed under the sink. Once he'd located the problem it took the man five minutes to fix it.
